Trial and error

Trial and error is sometimes a good way for interesting findings, in the windsurfbusiness I don't see much extreme things. But there are plenty of handy windsurfers willing too sacrifice time and equipment for science!! Here 2 amateur projects, I like to read about such projects. I often don't believe this experiments perform better in most conditions, but there always a chance of getting usefull information..


Project 1 "twinfin formula"
http://forum.windsurfing.nl/viewtopic.php?t=13866768

Goal making it possible to surf on shallow waters in low wind. I think this solution could be interesting

PS begin 2010 I read something about twinfin speedboard testing. Don't remember who did this, anybody knows more??? Any findings???




Project 2 "Asy fin"
I think this australian project is a bit more extreme.  It is ment to improve performance at some point. I wonder which side will be better, I would bet with left foot in front will be faster...

  1. It was me who "trew a ball up" about twinfins on speedboards, looking at kiters :-). I don't know if someone really tried it. Interesting though!

  2. There was actually a manufactorer (don't know small or big brand) that did produce a couple of twinfins speedboards. I thought for an italian guy, but don't know for sure anymore.

    Too bad I never found this on the internet again :(
